Indian PM Modi Visits Portugal on Trip to Meet with Trump

Indian PM Modi Visits Portugal on Trip to Meet with Trump

The Prime Minister said that apart from his official meetings with Trump and his Cabinet colleagues, he will meet some prominent American CEOs and the large Indian diaspora.

During his meet with Trump, Modi will explain how the H-1B visa programme has benefited both countries.

Noting that India is the indispensable country for addressing climate change, Asia Society Policy Institute Director of Asian Sustainability Jackson Ewing said India embodies the core climate debate about how much emerging economies should rely on fossil fuels for their development needs.

Between 2014 and 2016, Indian prime minister Narendra Modi cultivated a strong personal relationship with United States president Barack Obama.

New Delhi has been alarmed by Trump's courting of Chinese President Xi Jinping, whom he hosted at his Mar-a-Lago winter estate in April, officials in India said.

He also posted a statement on Facebook saying that Trump had invited Modi for the visit.

He will be meeting U.S. President Donald Trump and it will be the first meeting between the two leaders.

The senior White House official said any arms transfer would take into account the regional situation. We're really seeking to roll out the red carpet.

"This is very much an example of the U.S. wanting to treat India as a major defence partner, sort of demonstrating that, in concrete terms, that we consider India a close defence partner on par with our closest allies and partners", he added. "You have effortlessly gelled with the culture of the country you have been", he said.

They share a populist streak and a knack for using social media, and are likely to find common ground on combating Islamic extremism.

Queen outlines United Kingdom government agenda in scaled-down speech
This morning the Queen will read out the speech which will set out the government's legislative agenda for the next two years. Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron said: "This slimmed down Queen's Speech shows a Government on the edge".

Unlike the president, however, Modi enjoys widespread popularity at home, polls show.

The US is interested in providing India with the kind of defence technology it normally reserves for its closest allies, the White House has said, signalling the Trump administration's resolve to strengthen the bilateral defence relationship.

"They could either hit if off amazingly or fall out completely".

Meanwhile, a senior Trump official yesterday said that India and the USA have a common objective in Afghanistan, and the two countries could increase their cooperation to enhance the Afghan economy.

Yet Trump has been unpredictable with New Delhi so far.

In the video, two officials are seen attempting to open the door of the auto Modi is sat in, but they quickly change their minds for mysterious reasons. In making the announcement, the US president said New Delhi had made its participation "contingent on receiving billions and billions and billions of dollars in foreign aid".

Modi will head to the United States on the invitation of President Donald Trump.

"Accelerating its transition to a cleaner energy future - as Modi makes clear at every opportunity - will require substantial global support".

"Thus, it is absolutely unfair to target Indian firms which are facing increasing pressure in the United States through different non-trade measures like visa fee and other unrelated levies", Assocham further said. But its founder, Bindsavar Patak, said he hopes to ensure enough publicity and at the same time draw the attention of the world to one of the most important problems faced by Indian society. With India, we're building that strategic partnership. "He's not new to India".
